I am a bee on the wall. (bee stencil art by hälts c.2014)



I am a man walking down the busy city street. (hälts street fotography Toronto c.2005)



I am the shadow in a quiet street. (shadow work, Paia town, Maui explorations c.2012)



I am the social experiment at a festival (Entheos 2011, art experiment no. 55 fotodocument)



I am the Chief on the bus.

(Bassbus c.2011, detail looking at Chief Big Hau, he is based on a Chief from the Siksika Nation (Cluny Alberta)  whom my grandfather befriended in the 1930’s)



I am one with it, yet also insignificant, a small speck surrounded by the infinite.

Mahaloness is an art blog documenting the inner spirit and artist journey of Shane Haltman, also referred to as 'hälts'. He lives, breathes and makes art in Canada. Hälts often travels to remote and exotic locations to produce community spirit murals and paintings using available materials. He is unconventional in his approach to art and chooses unique projects and sometimes they choose him. He is known for guerrilla lawn art shows, painting helmet art for a Canadian Olympic Athlete, and once painted a magic bus out of this world. Mostly he is human as anyone else, however very driven and disciplined with respect to his artistic practice. He has experience working with the bereaved and helping people who are experiencing, or who have experienced trauma in their lives. He also enjoys working with the youth and passing on his wisdom, usually in the form of art jams. Hälts is a full spectrum artist, living and breathing art, as a daily practice, in this mixed up beautiful world.
